  • The Church of Cappucinusok bone. They very much the bones. Unfortunately it is not possible to take pictures, which is a little baffling. I liked the Church but little expensive the ticket.

  • Worth it, in every aspect. But what we don't understand is why you cannot take pictures (quite rightly, it is a sacred place), however, on the way out, you can buy postcards and shirts with pictures of what we saw inside. Why this? 5/5 for the Museum, the charnel house and the Church. 1/5 for this crazy stunt.

  • Ribs, jaws, vertebrae, hips, shoulder blades and bones in general form flowers, chandeliers, paintings and frame niches to the Capuchin monastery mummies character. Irresistible, the tomb is in the Church that, per se, is common, but the Museum is worth every penny of the visit. Internal photos are forbidden.

  • 8.5 euro entrance, if you're into religious objects they have a lot of relics and knowledge on it. If you came to see the crypts there are 4 and a prayer room; interesting setup of bones. You're in and out in 30 minutes though.
  • This is a very special church for me. I understand that it homes the original painting of St. Michael the Archangel (the one you see reproduced everywhere) and they had a Capuchin of the Barberini family whose cousin or uncle or something was Pope Urban VIII. Below the church is also a Franciscan museum with the famous bone crypts. The museum has an entrance fee.
  • Unique place. The crypt could be seen as an example of macabre art, since the different tiny chapels are made of skeletons, but it just reminds us our own mortality.
  • One of the coolest things I've ever seen. The place is literally made out of skeletons. The design and architecture are breathtaking. Not for the faint of heart!
  • The museum and crypt were possibly one of the most interesting and unique things me and my partner saw in Rome on our trip. The museum was tastefully done and provided a more in depth understanding and appreciation of the Capuchin monk culture and history. A must see!

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
